After being away from our favorite group in The Walking Dead, we finally return to see what they’re up to at Alexandria. Following the devastating events of the season premiere, Rick and company are in for a taste of the new world order when Negan and the Saviors arrive a bit earlier than expected.
This week, we got an extended 90-minute episode that mostly featured people being really bummed.
Life has barely returned to some semblance of normal at Alexandria when Negan comes calling. He marches right up to the gate and Rick, fully aware of what Negan is capable of, lets him in without question. Negan is all swagger and showman throughout the episode — a testament to Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s fantastic portrayal of the character — but his string of threats are real.
